We got to meet John through a Sea Choice meeting held by the David Suzuki Foundation.  John is an awesome man, who is also a commercial tuna and salmon fisherman.  He obviously is a wealth of knowledge and has created some video showcasing how to fillet you fish and the best way to freeze your fish.  His salmon preservation video is awesome because it combines three common freezing techniques used in industry.

  • Plate Freezing - Putting the salmon on a cookie sheet is similar to how a plate freezer works.  The metal will conduct the cold much better than just putting the salmon in the freezer.
  • Sea Glaze and Block Frozen - The salt water in the bag acts as a sea water glaze which will help protect the fish from freezer burn and oxidation.  It also is similar to how fish can be block frozen.
